  1. CNC to M&M

    I have access to a CNC so I have been learning/playing. Saw this candy dispenser and just had to try one. Cut the parts out of an MDF sheet. When clamped I noticed the gear did not spin freely as it is the same thickness as the spacer behind it. A couple of paper shims above/below the spacer...
  2. Black Walnut Candy Dispenser and Game

    This is a variation of the candy plinko design that Steve Ramsey shared a while back. I chose to use black walnut, real glass front, and brass pins. This turned out better than I expected. It can dispense plain M&M's, Reese's pieces, Skittles or any other 1/2" candy. Games can be created...

  4. An Old School Pencil Box .....with an M&Ms secret.

    September is coming with all it entails, but back when the earth was still cooling and I was in school (as my daughter would have you believe), pencil boxes were quite common and simple. A swing top, a rounded lid, in beech most likely, pencil crayon marked up in boredom, a storehouse for bugs...

  6. M&M/Skittles/Jelly Bean dispenser

    This is a candy dispenser that my dad and I made years ago. It is made out of a 4×4 post of cedar drilled across the side to the other for the ear/candy dispenser to drop into the hole drilled at an extreme angle to meet the cross drilled whole. The ears are circle cut pieces attached to a...
  7. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I picked this scroll saw up at a local auction for $15. Having never used a scroll saw in my life, figured can't go wrong with $15. It's nice and clean and looked all put together. Get it home, and tried to insert some Olson 5" scroll saw blades (non-pinned), and come to find out the upper...
  8. Wood & Lumber
    I have a question about wood dimension in metric countries (countries in which the metric system is the standard). Am I correct that lumber is sold in even number centimeters, I.E. 2cm, 4,cm, 6,cm? What are the typical lengths of boards, 2 meters? 3 meters? (I realize that (apparently) real...
